How much for a Reg. Holsteiner Filly/Colt

I have a registered Holsteiner mare who I'm looking to breed, however, I would be looking to sell the foal. Do you think that there would be a good profit? Also, what other WB associations could I breed with to register the foal as a different breed?

You could breed her against another warmblood like a bavarian or a dutch? A price on an unborn foal? This is a weird question as it all depends on the foals conformation, temp, trainability, bloodlines, sire and dam and how well her movement is. You cant put a price on a foal thats not even born yet as you dont know all of this information. Sorry i cant help more
Good luck

Why would you breed if your going to sell the foal? There is no money in breeding just so you know.

You have to pay for the service fee if it is a good and well known stallion. But by selling the foal you could get the service fee back. But as i said, You cant put a price on an unborn foal . So you dont know weather you will get back the service fee. Know what i mean by this? Im not very good at explaining...

Price will depend on a lot of things: your mare's conformation, height, show record, and breeding as well as the stallion you choose, your specific area, and the temperament and conformation of the foal.

I disagree with myhorsesonador when she say that there is no money in breeding because there is. There will always be a market for a well bred, well conformed, usable horse. Breeding responsibly is the key to success. If you are really interested in breeding your mare I would really look at your mare, find her weaknesses and breed to a stallion that compliments her.

Exactly what i was thinking just then just forgot to add it in my OP. But also it does depend on the foal, but then again if the mare has crappy confo and the stallion does too, you get a badly conformed foal....

Agree with everyone. It depends on numerous variables. I've seen Registered Holsteiners as low as $2000 and as high as $30 000.

Agreed, however "typically" this will only apply to well known reputable breeders. Unless you've managed to get your hands on "super mare", the odds that the average person is going to make a fortune selling one foal is slim to none. Making money on breeding depends on having a solid foundation of already proven dams and sires at your disposal. You're not going to produce a $10,000 weanling by breeding to the $1,000 stud down the road. Unless you know somebody, you simply will not make money selling the foal after you calculate ALL costs to breed, care and feed mare and foal for a year and a half.

I worked for a top Dressage trainer and coach a few years back when the market was GOOD. She had well bred Oldenburg mares with good bloodlines, all had been through inspection and approved. She had a well bred RCMP Hanoverian who was a proven Dressage horse, competing up to Level III and schooling Prix St Georges. Her weanling registered foals sold for roughly $5,000 a piece each - and that was a GOOD price. These are horses who are now selling as trained and competing 3 and 4 year olds for $30,000 and up.

The odds of you producing a baby so impeccable that people want to drop 20K on it are slim to none.

This is very true. If you are simply looking to make money than it's actually cheaper to find a very nice, very green 3 old, train it, and then resell. Most people that breed do not make money. It would be considered fantastic if, in the end, you broke even.
